Amy might have a dry sense of humor and constantly be making sarcastic jokes, but it is evident that she has found her soulmate in Jacques. These two adore one another. Their playful banter is what makes them “them” and I’m so glad we were able to spend a day in Beverly Hills with them at their Greystone Mansion engagement session.
Growing up a world apart, I’m so glad that these two found each other. Jacques grew up in Paris while Amy grew up in the bay area. They met in school and instantly connected. They are self proclaimed old souls that enjoy a fancy evening out once in awhile. Their connection came quickly and it soon became apparent to everyone that they were a unit – if one of them was going to be at an event, that the other one would be there too. Throughout medical school they navigated some amazing, and some very difficult times. They continue to make time for each other and support each other.
Over the holidays in 2018, Jacques proposed to Amy in Paris. Along a pier with the Eiffel Tower in the background, he dropped to one knee with a ring he picked out himself. Of course, Amy said yes!
We met Amy and Jacques in Los Angeles for their engagement session. As soon as they saw us, they handed us a box of fresh pastries – such a treat! At first, we had grand hopes of making it up to the Griffith Observatory, but when parking became a nightmare, we settled for some trails in the park. Once we were all warmed up, we made our way to the Greystone Mansion – a beautiful property in Beverly Hills with stone architecture and those incredible trees that make you feel like you’re in Europe. It was such a treat to photograph them there – and how perfect were their outfit choices?
Amy and Jacques, we had the best time getting to know you both – hearing more about your upbringing and families. Hopefully by the time the wedding rolls around you’ll be poking fun at us too! Thank you for being such a great couple to work with and for insisting on such an incredible location for your photos!
